I am Nicky Mondroski — mom of Evie, Finn and William and the lead parent on our scholarship fundraising event, Race to the Finn! October 7th is the 5th annual Race to the Finn at Burrows Park. We will have a 1mile, 5k and 10k race available and cost $25, $40 and $70 to walk or run. The race is named in honor of our son, Finnegan, who passed away on January 5th, 2013 from cancer and all proceeds go towards the Finnegan Ringdroski Scholarship.
Here are some ways you can help
1. We need more sponsors. Would your workplace like to donate $100? Their logo would appear on our race t-shirts. They can also throw in flyers or coupons into our race bags if they would like.
2. Ask your local veterinarian, dentist or chiropractor. It is affordable advertising for them.
3. Come to the race and participate! You can sign up here. This week, your children will receive an envelope that people can put donations in (and if your child raises the $25 for the mile — you don’t have to pay the admission fee).
4. Volunteer at the race. We will need help picking up donations (one is Ale Asylum beer!), setting up for the event and cheering on our kids!
Below is my Ask Letter that I take to businesses. If you want to know who has been asked, let me know. There is a list of 25 businesses already.
Thank you for all your help!
